The mission of Thrive is to engage, educate and equip young parents with a Christ-centered foundation that will transform their lives for generations. The purpose of this program is to promote and support their emotional, spiritual, and personal growth as well as a healthy pregnancy and birth. Each client is assigned an individual plan for her unique life needs. When appropriate she is assigned a Personal Development Advocate (PDA) to mentor her through her life dynamics. Thrive’s education component includes online pre-natal classes, individual DVD instruction and an evening group class once a month. Topics cover prenatal care, healthy pregnancy, nutrition, breast-feeding, child safety, parenting, life skills, spiritual instruction and much more. While the clients learn, they have the opportunity to shop in our Baby Boutique with their advocate for items such as diapers, wipes, clothing, and baby equipment. It is our vision to foster a culture within our community that values and strengthens families.
